Hello to all ! Where do I start ?
40yrs. old , 6’3" , 265 lbs. , lift weights and walk - belly fat around mid-section , receeding hair-line , little hair below knees
The major symptom I have from low T is ED. No brain fog or other issues just ED. It has been a long ten year + journey with little help.
After endos , urologists , etc. found a small practise that “specializes in hormone replacement”.
Currently on trt trifecta (1st doctor I have found to allow such and understand need of): 60 mg. (twice week) injected test-cyp. , .25 hcg x3 week , .25 arimidex x2 week
Labs (although limited) prior to treatment :
Test Total 174 (348-1197)
TSH 2.330 (.450-4.500)
IGF-1 161 (109 - 284)
T3 118 (71-180)
Latest Labs (taken 1 day prior to next t-shot) :
Test Total 545 (348-1197)
Free T 19 (8.7-25.1)
Estradiol 19.1 (7.6-42.6)
SHBG 16.1 (16.5-55.9)
With Free T being so high I would assume it would have helped ED. Generally the goal is to reduce SHBG but the low SHBG could be playing a role ?
So my questions are :
- any ideas ?
- did anybody have success treating ED and how ? Cialis , etc. not working just giving a flushed face and nasal congestion
- Anybody else wtih low SHBG and are you having same issue ?
Thanks for everyones’ help.
